Celebrating its 20th anniversary year in 2015, Tradition Golf Club is an 18-hole championship course designed by Ron Garl. It was nominated as best New Public Course by Golf Digest in 1996. Other awards include “Top Fairways” by Golf for Women in 1998, South Carolina Golf Course of the Year in 2001, and 4 1/2 Stars in Golf Digest’s “Places to Play” in 2008. The friendly, knowledgeable staff is dedicated to warmly welcoming all guests. Located in the Lowcountry plantations of Pawleys Island, Tradition Club is the course of choice for visitors and locals alike. Its generous tree-lined fairways provide golfers an opportunity to pull driver out of the bag.
Two island greens, fairway and waste bunkers, and environmental areas provide the strategic challenges that make the course one to play over and over again. Subtle breaks on the well-conditioned Bermuda greens, many of which slope from back to front, require good shot-making skills. The signature 7th hole is a short par 4 with an island green and must be played with precision. There is a spacious target-style practice facility with bunkers and a practice green for putting and chipping. Men and women, juniors and seniors, low-handicappers and high-handicappers alike enjoy playing Tradition Club.

The course is in great shape, fast and true greens. A few wet spots but
running the fairways. In overall great condition.

Great course and have played here multiple times before but got off late this last round and only got 16 holes in. Disappointing because they didn't have any carts ready for the 1 o'clock on tee times. Other than that one of the better courses in that area and with a nice online price from MBN.com.

Very good overall.

Loved playing this course, each hole was like being on the course by yourself, the starters were well organized and our group of 16 got off without a hitch. Lots of pride taken by staff in making this course an excellent venue.

We have played at Tradition Club for quite a few years now, and it has consistently been one of our favorites. The staff is always friendly and helpful, especially Bobby, who has become a very welcomed friend over the years. This most recent round of golf was played only about three weeks following Hurricane Matthew, and yet, the course was in great shape. I was told they had lost more than 100 trees on the course, but they had done a terrific job in cleaning things up, and quite frankly, the loss of the trees did not seem to adversely affect the course at all. I also want to commend the Pro Shop staff and the quality of their merchandise. Tradition Club always has an outstanding selection of golf wear, as good as any in the MB area.

Good layout playable by many different levels. Course was in reasonable shape for time of years, greens a bit slow.
Assistant Head Golf Professional Kurtis Kuhn gives us the lowdown on one of Myrtle Beach golf’s true “Hidden Gem” holes: the par-4 6th hole at Tradition Golf Club – situated just a stone’s throw off Hwy. 17 in beautiful Pawleys Island.
Only an ace can top the single-hole joy of pulling off an eagle. Do it on a par 5, and all of a sudden you’re happy enough to bypass protocol and buy the next round in the clubhouse anyway. Executing three consecutive great shots isn’t easy. But after hundreds of rounds along South Carolina’s Grand Strand, we’ve pinpointed some of our favorite opportunities for shaving two strokes off and finding a type of bliss that will put an exclamation point on a trip to any of these courses.
Out on the course, a few light beers from the drink cart or out of the cooler you hope isn't dripping on your clubs hits the spot. For some, the hours after the round are about finding something more: Better drinks, better food, better environment.
Courses from North Myrtle Beach to Pawleys Island are among the “hottest”-trending courses in Myrtle Beach golf, according to the most recent reviews submitted by visiting golfers at the Myrtle Beach Golf Insider.
Nestled on the south end of South Carolina’s Grand Strand, Tradition has succeeded in both competing with and joining its neighbors to complete the famed Waccamaw Golf Trail. But unlike even some of those, this is a course that is only a decade and a half removed from being named the South Carolina Golf Course of the Year.
